To the Editor:
Just wanted to congratulate you all on a terrific edition of the Similkameen Valley Travel Guide. Informative, clear and precise to the point that the “valley” is a true gem, one that I have loved for many years. And a spectacular river runs through to top it off!
As a young man, whilst in university in Victoria, I would travel through Keremeos on my way to my mining job of a particular summer. And I always stopped in Keremeos for a quick bite and always a chat with a local person from the village. I also said then that one day, in my later years, I would have a little cabin on the river.
I hope the valley has a great summer and I urge all residents to look after their “gem.” It is a very fine place!
Kind regards, Robin Blencoe, Essex Ontario
